Contract negotiation team forms #

Our contract negoti­a­tion team has met for the first time! Thank you so much for filling out the survey about your concerns. Those results really drove the conver­sa­tion and gave us great infor­ma­tion about what matters to you. We look forward to repre­senting all of you when we meet with manage­ment (date to be deter­mined) to discuss our contract. Your ongoing support and enthu­siasm is so impor­tant to our success as a bargaining unit! 

WSNA water bottles delivered #

Back in March, unit reps met and planned our Nurses Week gifts. We chose aluminum water bottles, printed at a union shop in the USA, that say Got Break?” to celebrate our break relief settle­ment! We passed out many of the bottles during Nurses Week in May, and finished up distrib­uting bottles this month. Thank you to the fun, dedicated reps who helped label, bag and pass out bottles over the last two weeks. We hope that you enjoy sipping from them on your well-deserved uninter­rupted rest and meal breaks.

Monthly happy hour, just for us! #

Many of us want more oppor­tu­ni­ties for casual gathering and conver­sa­tion among our fellow nurses. So, we are initi­ating monthly SJMC WSNA Happy Hour, hosted by your member­ship team! Join us at the 7 Seas in Tacoma (down the hill from SJMC on Jefferson and 21st), from 5 – 7 p.m. every first Wednesday of the month. WSNA will provide delicious munchies and a gift card raffle, and drinks are avail­able for individual purchase. June 6 was our first Happy Hour, and we had a great time. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Due to the holiday, we will meet on July 5 at the 7 Seas, instead of July 4. Do not miss out!
